Warriors News · Honoring Senior Spring Athlete Lucas Rechsteiner


Lucas has been a member of the throws club on the Western track team for four years.  While he has spent most of his time hanging in the pits, he has been known to lace up the spikes now and then and spin his wheels on the track in the short sprints and relays.  His bread and butter event however, is the discus.  With a personal best of 121 feet, he placed third in Bay County last year.  Lucas is also a multi-sport athlete and has earned the title of the Bay County Doubles Champion this past year in tennis. One favorite memory Lucas has is the special bond the throwers have with anyone “in the pits”.  One that they celebrated by having a multiteam hotdog cookout during the Regional meets at Midland High and Western.  Lucas has shown that there are some brains behind the brawn for those in the pits.  He has taken several Advanced Placement courses and he has been accepted to Michigan Technological University to pursue a career in mechanical engineering. Lucas we wish you the best of luck in all of your future endeavors! Forever a Warrior!
